I bought a box. I have fairly sensitive skin. But my nose is awful for black heads. shameful

Anyway, I can react to things. For instance I have not yet found a hair removal cream for my upper lip that doesn't leave me looking red and sore for hours afterwards.

So when is the best time to do this biore strip?

I don't want a bright red nose for he school run later

I'd suggest trying salicylic acid instead e.g. Paula 'a choice. Some people really like the AHA toners such as pixi glow, or the nip fab pads. Personally, I like Paula's choice as there is no fragrance and no alcohol (so nonstinging or sensitivity). The strips, although gratifying, might be too much for your sensitive skin.
I have a very red reactive nose, and am now finding my pores on my nose seem bigger and I have sebaceous filaments. The nip fab pads made me redder, however.
